Front Mission, at least the strategy RPG games, had plots usually revolving around one nation’s plans for world domination. Tucked between the Wanzer vs. Wanzer and Wanzer vs. guy with rocket launcher battles Front Mission Evolved has a story too.
This is how Square Enix describes the plot.
In the future, the world is a changed place. Technology has advanced. Countries have merged into massive geopolitical blocks. But one thing, sadly, remains the same – humanity’s appetite for war. When a terrorist attack destroys one of the U.C.S.’s prized orbital elevators, the military is mobilised to eliminate the threat.
Dylan Ramsey, a young engineer, finds himself quickly caught in a swirl of destruction, conspiracies and crumbling alliances. Experience his story in this high-octane third-person shooter.
Double Helix isn’t throwing Front Mission’s mythology entirely out the window. The U.C.S., a combination of North America and South America, was in of past works.
